I couldn't get past the first 20 minutes. Impossible to understand the narrator.
Love Graham Greene. A real disappointment
Getting a refund. I hope.
I was very motivated to learn about the topic. Otherwise, I could never have made it through the narration.
The story yes. Not the listen.
Maybe. It is hard to blame this reader for what seems to be unfortunate editorial decisions, i.e. to have her change voice, accent and volume everytime a different character speaks or, more annoyingly, every time she reads a quote from an original source. What may have been a fairly good story was rendered overly academic and pretentious.
In better hands, a very compelling story. Just do not let this author do the screenplay.
Please, please do not rob readers of the chance to experience a good historical story. This is WAAAY too cluttered up with original sources and a very jarring, annoying performance. Just READ the story. Let it speak for itself.
